"That shows me about Alzner that he is so positionally sound," Laughlin said. "You take penalties as a defenseman when you are out of position - you don't move your feet or you're not in the right lane or you're not blocking a shot or there's some miscue."
"Between those two guys, I see the simplicity to their game. You notice Karl, obviously, because the game's played at such a pace. And you notice Langway because at the time, his size and his mammoth reach," said Craig Laughlin, the Capitals' color analyst who played parts of seven seasons with Langway in Montreal and Washington. "But what I see in similarities is you never see them cough the puck up. Both Alzner and Langway make the good pass. When in doubt, they throw it off the glass. There's never big miscues by either of them."
